Bio: Stan Chester, is the president of
the Forest History Association of British Columbia.
Apsey is a former deputy minister of forests in British Columbia, and he is the
current president of the BC Forest Service Centenary Society.
Abstract: In this talk, Stan describes
the structure and activities of the FHABC. He further examines the shifts in
the BC forest products industry, and parallel changes in forest history
practice. These latter practices are important in the light of disappearing
primary sources, and the advent of perpetually changing “born digital” information.
this two-part talk, Mike outlines the activities of the BCFS Centenary Society,
planned for the duration of 2012. He also shares an outline of the last century
of BC forest history more generally.
